Steve lost a leg whilst serving in Iraq. He was a member of the Talent squad before being added to the UK Sport Lottery Funded World Class Programme in 2017 following his medal-winning performances at the European and world championships.
Steve was always active in the gym, running, mountain biking and and play rugby when he was growing up. He served in the Welsh Guards for almost ten years. He suffered a traumatic amputation of the left leg below the knee due to an improvised explosive device in Iraq in 2010.
Having completed half marathons and two full marathons, long distance running was taking its toll on his body. Looking online, he saw UK Ironman 70.3 Exmoor, considered one of the toughest 70.3 triathlons in the world, and decided that was where he would start his triathlon career. I continued with middle and standard distance triathlon for a couple of years, before concentrating on Paratriathlon sprint distance.

Triathlon was a happy accident. I spent a lot of time in rehab rebuilding my fitness, which involved a lot of hours in the pool. I started with gym and swim, worked my way back to biking before I finally got running. I had inadvertently become a Triathlete.
Steve was born in Essex and lived there until he was 12. He then moved to North Wales, staying there until he joined the Army at the age of 20. He currently lives in Exeter Devon, where he has been for the last 12 years. He is coached by Rob Moore.
